Cherry Ghost

Biography

After several years of falling out of the back of transits, Simon Aldred dodged the good sense of his peers telling him to 'get a proper job', took refuge in his bedroom and started work on demos that would form the beginnings of Cherry Ghost.

Getting his mates in on the act, keen to dodge the singer-songwriter tag and even more keen to create a bit of a racket, Cherry Ghost completed a handful of gigs around their hometown of Manchester, scored a deal with Heavenly and entered the studio last Summer for four months of recording. The results will be released in July of this year.
